    Of course its completely random and there really is no telling what could come up, but a question on Exchange Rates is due and in the Global Context, a question on the effect of growth of particular countries (Perhaps Brazil for example, or even China) effects living standards in the UK or simply assess the effect of growth in these countries on UK economic performance

    I personally am hoping for this question to come up again
    "Evaluate government policies which might bring about a reduction in the UK deficit on the balance of trade in goods and services."
    or even better
    "To what extent would a significant fall in the exchange rate of the pound sterling achieve a sustained reduction in unemployment in the UK?"
    When did they last ask about exchange rates?

    They have no way of seeing the paper until a day before, even then they shouldn't .. from what my Econ teacher has said, AQA often give advice to teachers on what students need to do to achieve they higher marks and what advice should be given directly to students.

    I know an examiner who has seen the paper, apparently it's a good paper but reading the question really hard is very import and questions which look hard may not be as tricky as you think.
    Anything else you can share?

    how u feelin for this bro? I'm a bit shaky, only got 80 on econ 2 last year
    You've had a year since then mate, you'll probably be fine.

    I reckon I need about 72 to 80 for the grade I want, would've been nice to get Econ3 out of the way in January so I'd know where I stand for this, but our school doesn't enter people for January exams in Economics.

    Same thing for me, applied to take it in January but rejected, school came back to me saying it would cost them more blah blah, and others can't be denied the opportunity
